Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump: Most Hated US President in History?


Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the two presidential candidates in polling history who are hated by voters like no one else have been.

Although, a review of the last eight presidential elections showed that the most hated candidate in the spring almost always finishes up winning in November.

According to New York Post, this year’s top candidates have been receiving a record smashing voter disdain. While 32 percent of voters couldn’t stand George W. Bush in 2004, Clinton is “strongly disliked” by 37 percent of voters.

The 2016 election will likely put Clinton, who is disliked by a majority of voters. It was the voters of Indiana last week, who gave the country the most appropriate outcome that had lingered for months.

Trump is hated by another group of a more intense majority of voters. And the disapproval of the Republican frontrunner has never been seen before in presidential polling, with 53 percent rating him “strongly unfavorable.”

The numbers were provided by FiveThirtyEight, while releasing a series of charts, which compared the “strongly unfavorable” ratings of presidential candidates dating back to 1984.

The real estate mogul is way more disliked and holds most negative ratings among nonwhite voters not seen since the 1964 campaign of Barry Goldwater.

Both the Republican and Democratic candidate have set records. Both have the lowest net favourability numbers ever calculated.

While Clinton is running on a minus-20, which is by far the lowest in history, Trump is at minus-41, which is even worse.

“In the history of polling, we’ve basically never had a candidate viewed negatively by half of the electorate,” wrote Sen. Ben Sasse.

“There are dumpster fires in my town more popular than these two ‘leaders.’”

According to Washington Post, the Republican nominee is a big motivator for anti-Clinton voters.

Clinton’s crowd got carried away when she asked how awkward it was to see violence spun out at Trump rallies.
